Met sy heel eerste verskyning op televisie as hoërskool-laaitie het Rian van Heerden reeds die volk die josie ingemaak. Sedertdien het hy dikwels
koerantvoorblaaie gehaal - en is telkens afgedank! - vir sy omstrede uitlatings. In dié boek skryf hy onbeskaamd oor al die goed wat mense meen hy eerder nié moes gesê het nie. Hy maak vir die eerste keer sy hart oop oor sy persoonlike lewe, sy worsteling met gaywees en sy eerste liefdesverhouding. Blatant eerlik, skreeusnaaks, aangrypend.

An extraordinary account of what it means to stand up for justice, and for yourself, no matter the cost; now with a new epilogue 'It is when things feel the most uncertain, and we are at our most tired, frustrated and worn out, that we must dig deep. That's when we need to find it within ourselves not to turn away and hide in our bunkers, but to rise up and be even more vocal . . . If we hide, when we emerge from our hiding places the world might be transformed into a hostile, alien environment in which we have no say at all and where the things we love and value no longer exist.'

When Robert McBride was sentenced to death, he shouted: 'The struggle continues till Babylon falls.' It was 1987: the time of 'total onslaught'. The trial of the MK unit that planted the Magoo bomb on Durban's beachfront dominated the news but few knew the real story of the brave young people who brought the armed struggle to Natal. This is the forgotten, thrilling tale of a young man's incredible sacrifice for the struggle, loyalty between friends, and falling in love across the race barrier.

'n Epiese reis in 'n klein seiljag van Frankryk tot aan die Namakwalandse kus gedurende die Tweede Wêreldoorlog, sabotasiepogings en planne om Eerste Minister Jan Smuts in 'n sluipmoord om die lewe te bring . . . In die vroeë 1940's is die Suid-Afrikaanse publiek aangegryp deur die uitdagende optrede van die Olimpiese bokser en swaargewigkampioen Robey Leibbrandt. Hy was dodelik gekant teen Suid-Afrika se deelname aan die oorlog. Sy ekstremisme, opvlieëndheid en onverdraagsaamheid was tipies van 'n politieke fanatikus.

Leibbrandt het 'n aanhanger van Nasionaal-Sosialisme geword toe hy in 1936 vir Suid-Afrika in Berlyn aan die Olimpiese Spele gaan deelneem het. Hy was besig met opleiding in Europa toe die oorlog uitbreek. Die Duitse militêre intelligensiediens het hom kort daarna gewerf om sabotasieopleiding te ontvang.
Die Duitsers het Leibbrandt teruggestuur na Suid-Afrika as deel van Operasie Weissdorn. Sy missie? Om die militante deel van die Afrikaner-opposisie te werf en met hulle hulp skeeps- en haweinstallasies, asook nywerhede, te vernietig, en om oproer in die Uniemagte te stook.

Dit was nie lank nie of die polisie was op Leibbrandt se spoor en hy is ná een van die grootste polisiesoektogte in hegtenis geneem.
Sy hoogverraadsaak in 1943 en 1944 het hoofopskrifte gehaal.
Dié biografie werp nuwe lig op hierdie enigmatiese historiese figuur en wat sy fanatisme aangevuur het.

In hierdie memorie vertel sy van die sleutel oomblikke in haar lewe wat haar daartoe gedryf het om kulturele en etniese grense oor te steek om sodoende uit te vind wie sy werklik is. Haar besluite neem haar vanaf die Vrystaat na Distrik Ses en Venda, na Nederland en die Verenigde Koninkryk, na Heideveld en Hanover Park en uiteindelik na McGregor.

Haar nederige storie vertel van die geestelike isolasie van alle 'vlugtelinge' wat die onversoenbare waardes van hulle 'tuiste' (hetsy fisies of ideologies) verlaat en nuwe maniere moet vind om 'n lewe te skep. Dit vertel ook van die wonder om 'n metgesel langs die pad te vind.

"In this spellbinding book, Svetlana Alexievich orchestrates a rich symphony of Russian voices telling their stories of love and death, joy and sorrow, as they try to make sense of the
twentieth century, so tragic for their country." - JM Coetzee

From the 2015 winner of the Nobel Prize in Literature comes the first English translation of her latest work, an oral history of the disintegration of the Soviet Union and the emergence of a new Russia. Bringing together dozens of voices in her distinctive documentary style, Second-Hand Time is a monument to the collapse of the USSR, charting the decline of Soviet culture and speculating on what will rise from the ashes of Communism. As in all her books, Alexievich gives voice to women and men whose stories are lost in the official narratives of nation-states, creating a powerful alternative history from the personal and private stories of individuals.

'Communism had an insane plan: to refashion the 'old' breed of man, ancient Adam,' writes Alexievich. 'This was perhaps communism's only achievement. Seventy plus years in the Marxist-Leninist laboratory gave rise to a new kind of man, the Homo sovieticus.' In this magnificent requiem Alexievich's method is simple: 'I don't ask people about socialism, I ask about love, jealousy, childhood, old age. Music, dances, hairstyles. The myriad sundry details of a vanished way of life...It never ceases to amaze me how interesting ordinary, everyday life is.

There are an endless number of human truths...I am fascinated by people.' From this fascination emerges a hugely important and deeply moving portrait of post-Soviet society. In a nation that likewise grapples with making sense of scattershot historical experience, Alexievich's portraits may make the South African reader draw unexpected and uncomfortable parallels between Russia post-1990 and South Africa post-1994.

Nuwe, hersiene en uitgebreide uitgawe.
Nicolaas van Rensburg herbevestig hom nie net as godsman en profeet nie, maar hy gee as 't ware ook vir ons 'n ooggetuie verslag van die onmiddellike en toekomstige gebeure wat besig is om in Suid-Afrika en in die res van die wêreld af te speel:
• Verdeeldheid en skeuring in die ANC.
• Swart op swart geweld.
• Wêreldwye chaos en opstande, gevolg deur 'n depressie.
• Begin van die 3de Wêreldoorlog, en
• Ons laaste vryheidstryd.
Vir Siener se nasate (die 'getroue Afrikaners') is daar egter ook goeie nuus. Die einde van hulle onderlinge twis en verdeeldheid is in sig, en die begin van die Derde Republiek lê om die draai. Die boek verstrek ook antwoorde op vrae soos, waarom is daar so 'n noue verbintenis tussen die Duitse volk en die Boere? Gaan die Kaapse skiereiland afskeur en onder die see verdwyn? Wat gaan die impak wees as daar iets drasties by Koeberg skeefloop? En, wanneer gaan klaas weer baas word?
Siener - Blaas die Basuin, sal u soms aangryp, soms ontroer, soms verbyster, maar aan die einde met vreugde en blydskap laat — 'n boek wat gelees móét word.

Die publikasie van Boodskapper van God 20 jaar gelede was nie net die eerste volledige biografie van die bekende Boereprofeet (Siener van Rensburg) nie, maar ook 'n versameling van al sy beskikbare gesigte in een band. Sedertdien het die visioene van Siener van Rensburg sy volksgenote geroep, gelei en gedra deur 'n baie moeilike tyd in ons geskiedenis. Maar nou staan hulle daar waar hy gesê het 'dit sal so donker wees dat ek nie my hand voor my oë kan sien nie.'

Gebeure wat hy in sy visioene gesien het, word nou eers bewaarheid, soos die instroming van swartes uit Afrika hierheen en na Europa; 'n konflik wat al 'n jaar lank in Rusland woed en in 'n burgeroorlog kan ontwikkel; die verslegting van die wêreldekonomiese toestand; aanhoudende kragonderbrekings in Suid-Afrika; munisipaliteite wat al byna almal bankrot is; droogtes en hongersnood wat voorlê; onteiening van grond; die media wat ons in die duister hou oor belangrike plaaslike en wêreldgebeure; stakings; Siener se woorde 'kyk na die parlement, want daar gaan ons dinge begin,' en laastens sy profesie dat "niks in die kerk meer reg sal wees nie."

Sy visioene staan in die lig van die volle waarheid, dis 'n openbaring van verborge skakeringe van volkslyding, smart, vernedering, verraad, sonde, maar uiteindelik 'n godsvreugde van genade en vryheid wanneer 'n grootse wonderwerk gebeur.

Charles Fryer, skryf in Insig van Junie 1993: "Dis die onvergeetlike verhaal van een van die merkwaardigste persoonlikhede in ons geskiedenis. 'n Boek wat die Boereprofeet teruggee aan sy volk."

Nicolaas (Seer) van Rensburg was a modern day Nostradamus. He became a legend during his lifetime and was one of the most remarkable and controversial charcters who ever lived in South Africa. Van Rensburg not only foretold the future of South Africa, but also that of England, Europe, America, Japan and Russia. He predicted World War 3 after the turn of the century. It is a chilling experience to read about his predictions of 'terrible electric rays' (laser beams) that will sow death and destruction and soak the earth in blood. He describes the events on the battlefields of the world in such detail as though he himself had been an eye-witness. Here are some of the prophecies he made from 1899 until his death in 1926:
* Outbreak of the Anglo-Boer War and that South Africa will lose that war
* The First World War, the 'Flu epidemic and the Second World War
* Dr. H.F. Verword, former Prime Minister, will be murdered
* The nuclear disaster at Chernobyl on April 26 1986
* The divorce and murder of an English noble woman in a 'car accident' and who would be mourned by the whole world
The release of Nelson Mandela by ex-President FW de Klerk
* South Africa will be governed by a black government
Japan's destruction by earthquakes, and that
* England will be struck by seven terrible plagues when World War 3 is at hand

The astounding prophecies in this book are of great importance, not only to South Africans, but also to the people of the Western world.

Slot van die dag: Gedagtes is die skrywer se mymeringe oor ouderdom en die einde van die lewe, saam met verspreide herinnerings van 'n algemene aard, om 'n ryk geskakeerde beeld te verskaf van 'n skrywerslewe van byna tagtig jaar. Die reeks outobiografiese boeke wat met 'n Duitser aan die Kaap, Merksteen en Die laaste Afrikaanse boek begin het, word hiermee afgesluit.
Dit is 'n baie persoonlike boek oor ouderdom, die skryfproses en selfbeskikking met kommentaar op oud word en wees, met inbegrip van praktiese wenke, en heelwat inligting oor die moontlike en waarskynlike einde van die lewe. Die element van afskeid en gelatenheid is deurlopend. Die ouderdom is teenswoordig die vernaamste onderwerp van sy oorpeinsing, en die vernaamste element in sy daagliks ervarings.
Die verwysings en aanhalings is treffend en spreek van iemand wat sy leeswêreld ook sy leefwêreld maak. Ten slotte verduidelik die skrywer sy bevrydende besluit oor selfdood.
